Just preordered RAGE as well. New Egg is killing it lately with the preorder offers.

Doesn't New Egg charge your card immediately for pre-orders?

No they don't. As I mentioned before, cancelling a preorder is easier than Amazon.

Ya Amazon would be my first choice then Newegg but Amazon's preorder deals haven't been very good as of late.

I think I read once that it's illegal for mail order companies to charge your card until the product is in the shipping process.

Looking to pick up an XBox 360 Console w/Kinect. Any good deals out there? I saw some a few weeks back with gift certificates, etc. and wondering if anything is still on. Thanks.

I'm guessing it means that larger, more reputable companies don't do it since they try not to do blatantly illegal things.

4Gb with Kinect comes with a 60.00 gift card from Amazon right now as well.
http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-4GB-C...5101765&sr=8-1

Save 50 now @ WM, or get 60 to spend in the future.

Not sure of the odds of deals as good as the recent ones coming around holiday time.

I think I might do the "Pre-order 5 games at Best Buy and get a $100 gift card" deal. Amazon's been slackin'...

Anyone know if Amazon is still doing 99 cents release day guarantee? I was going to preorder and stopped when I could not find the option.

Call and complaint after it arrives late. I bet they'll give you $5 credit or something like that.

I guess they extended this sale because the store I went to today still had it going. Picked up Epic Mickey and Kirby Epic Yarn for $14.99.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Killzone 3: Helghast Edition is now down to $42.08 at Amazon.com. The price of this game has been steadily declining every day or so in the past weeks. So the price may still go down some more if you're patient. But this was a price point that I'm willing to pay. Wanted to buy it at Amazon.com for $39.99 during the lightning deal but missed it. Then almost bought it at Best Buy when it was supposedly $49.99 (+tax), but missed the sale as well. So this price is okay for me.

That's a great price! Too bad I can't take advantage of that...
